About the Scranton Academy for Financial Education
Surveys consistently show that Americans are lacking in basic “financial literacy” due largely to a lack of access to educational resources in homes and public school systems. The Scranton Academy for Financial Education (S.A.F.E.) is dedicated to providing no-cost financial education as a public service. Our programs and services are aimed at three specific target audiences: ages 15-25, ages 25-55, and ages 55 and over. Our vision is of a nation where all individuals have access to financial education that enables them to make smart choices based on their current economic situation. Toward that end, S.A.F.E. provides education on the principles of finance, money management, and saving and investing via programs offered in schools, businesses, and through community organizations. The goal is to arm working Americans of all ages with information that helps them make smart financial decisions.
As a nonprofit organization, our effort to help people make educated financial decisions can’t take place without the support of the community. While S.A.F.E. is comprised of a network of qualified financial professionals who volunteer their time as financial educators, membership and support can take many forms. We are involved in nationwide partnerships with knowledgeable agencies and individuals who help us reach our various target audiences and facilitate our programs. We are also active as an advocacy group for financial literacy. We welcome anyone interested in becoming involved as a S.A.F.E. educator, event organizer, volunteer, board member, or financial donor.
